Planet Dog & Cat Walkers
About this Pet Care Provider
I provide Cat Sitting visits and Dog Walking for residents of Novato.
Cats are usually dismissed as independent pets, but they actually dislike when their people go away.
Sensitive to change and easily stressed, your cat will receive thoughtful care and attention, along with territory maintenance and feeding. Litter boxes are monitored and scooped each visit.
Keeping routines, providing playtime, and drawing out the shy or fearful cat help during your absence.
Cats have strong instincts to hunt, catch, kill and eat. Interactive Playtime twice a day helps satisfy these needs and provides exercise. I often find shy cats quickly become friends due to play sessions.
Cats who are fearful and hide themselves away are enriched in non-direct ways, such as leaving food puzzles or treat treasures around the home.
Some dogs are better suited for individual walks due to age, ability or temperament. I provide individual, neighborhood walks.
Exercise, manners reinforcement and lots of exploring are incorporated into our walks. My goal for your dog is maximum enrichment.
Training and qualifications: Canine education through DogBiz Dog Walking Academy (formerly dog*tec), and Karen Pryor Academy Shelter Training.
Ongoing Canine and Feline training through Marin Humane.
Current volunteer at Marin Humane as a shelter dog walker (Dog Pet Pal).
